Fall has well and truly arrived to the mountain top and I'm delighted to see all the vibrant colors everywhere I look!
We could all sure use a little happiness and light after the sad week we had last week.
I've been working today on a very special post, my first ever autumn home tour! The post isn't live yet, you'll have to wait until Tuesday - and I'm so excited to welcome you into my home!
There will be home tours all week, with the schedule of homes found to the right, on my sidebar.
I'm honored to be included among an incredibly talented group of ladies and I can't wait to see what they all have to share!
Meanwhile, we've already had a few nights in the 30's up here on the mountain top, which means the leaves are changing rapidly and the colors are fabulous.
The foliage is not even close to peak season yet, but it's not far off, perhaps another 10 days or so.
I drifted off to sleep the other night to the smell of woodsmoke wafting in through the window I had cracked open in my bedroom.
I awoke to see my neighbor has started up her woodstove for the season. Later that day I did the very same.
It really feels like fall when you light the first real wood fire of the season!
Despite the bears that have been regular visitors all season I decided it was time to feed the birds again. I hung only the flat feeder for now, as I feel the bears won't be able to do too much damage to that one. The other feeders remain locked in a metal bin in the garage until the bears have hibernated for the season.
It only took about 5 minutes before the birds found the feeder again. I've missed their regular visits so much for the past few months!
Before I go, I would like to wish all my Jewish readers a happy Rosh Hashanah.
And I'll see you back here for the start of the bloggers harvest tour on Monday!
